Pregnancy discrimination can taint the workplace

Working parents in California are not alone in their concerns about how their pregnancy and parenthood will be treated by their employers on the job. Even U.S. senators may have reason to share in these concerns as has come to light following the pregnancy of Sen. Tammy Duckworth, the first senator to deliver a child while in office. She may be prevented from participating in deliberation and voting during her parental leave as senators must be physically present in order to vote and children are barred from the floor of the Senate, unlike many other national parliaments.

IBM faces allegations of age discrimination

Workers in California and around the country who are 40 or older are protected by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. However, a report from ProPublica and Mother Jones suggests that IBM has taken many different steps to reduce the number of workers it has in that age range. This has been done by asking some to retire early or to move thousands of miles to keep their jobs.
